      I live near herea nd thought i would add my 2 cents worth in,
      There is a little ghost town named Frank near High River however it is not
      between High River and Aldersyde but East of High River, I have been there,
      origially it was a little mormon pioneer town but not all mormons lived
      there, there is some building s still standing (I am a photograper and have
      lots of photos) but the exciting part is that there is a little Cemetary
      that is surrounded by a fence in the middle of a farmers field, and about
      200 people in it, I was so excited i told my church about it and now the
      youth go out and take care of it, this i also have photos of. There is also
      a lake near by that is now a nature reserve, it is a very small lake now but
      once was quite a bit larger.
      Hope this helps and if you need anything elce let me know.
